Student work fills Large and Small galleries. The 2016 Art Students Annual exhibition opens today in Kittredge Gallery, showcasing work created as part of studio art classes or independent studies. Any current student who has taken a studio art class is eligible to submit artwork to the juried show. The exhibition runs through Dec. 10.
Is your stitching subversive? A new guest artist residency by textile artist Diana Weymar begins today, and runs through Dec. 7. Watch the events calendar for special events, including stitching workshops, lectures, and more. Hint: There's one today!
Our campus map got an upgrade. Take a look at our new interactive campus map, a full-color rendering of campus with "pins" for academic and administrative buildings, ahtletics facilities, outdoor spaces, and more. Special features include temporary categories for special events, such as Commencement and Orientation, and the ability for users to print custom versions of the map, highlighting specific categories or areas of campus. Explore for yourself at pugetsound.edu/campusmap. (Prefer the old bird's-eye-view version of the map? Don't worry. You can still view and print the gray-scale line drawing.)
Donate your old books. Staff Senate needs book donations for the annual Book and Bake Sale this December, a fundraiser for the Rosa Beth Gibson Book Scholarship. If you have books to donate any time between now and then, contact Sue Dahlin at sdahlin@pugetsound.edu. She will gladly take them off your hands!
A memorial service for Professor Emeritus Michael Curley will be held Nov. 21. Curley died Oct. 9, after a struggle with cancer. Read the full obituary in The News Tribune. The memorial service will be held next Monday, at 4 p.m., in the Tahoma Room.
